a very warm welcome to you this is our to live for. well greece is at a boiling point with police firing tear gas at crowds of angry protesters thousands of demonstrators are trying to block access to the parliament building where the government is discussing more cutbacks to secure further rescue loans. watching events in athens. we did see clashes between the police on the place as is this a little while ago a the police are letting that take us into the crowd not still quite you can really feel the take absolute such a state hit it's in fact the spot when it happened a lot of people trying to clear the area that a lot of people turned out so they say that was a major question that is happening a lot of people caught up in that she is that being quite is that is just what
happened we were slightly fed the bad and it happened very very quickly though speaking to one protester hey he said you know if the people who are involved in provoking the police what did you know about that. i know for sure that the. so-called protesters they were black shoots and they provoked the police was. throwing stuff on them and then make them fight back to the real protesters and that's how the system breaks. the front lines in this endeavor by the pool and we don't want to send over everybody home because we want to stay here and fight. territories. and everything we have works. and that's what how the they break our defense of the scientist to speak and it's a day full of the organizers and the like is he is a team a need if you will going to use a protest today and they said the same thing that the chilean the keenest to listen
to. live on these are the places to be peaceful and safe of the most we think they have the ability to fight this fight and right now we need that they sixteen points to get involved in this that i call this trouble thinking it is the faces of those that think it is going to have the courage that they feel like and not the thing that you know literally millions of them that fighting outside the states that they got a year of dealing with incredibly top of stairs and that is the job market is appalling at sixteen percent unemployment in the quake. they said the latest thing is really bad enough they said this is the fault of the banks and the politicians and not going to make them look and that's why they hit the main. thing again. reporting from the greek capital now there are plenty of. what's happening in athens have a look at your screen right now of course it's our twitter page. underscore of
course there with details along with links to the latest analysis videos and. greeks make their anger known about facing further cuts germans are no less furious about having to pay for it again later today german m.p. klaus peter says that's why e.u. countries should take responsibility for themselves. when the treaty. was regulated that there must be any bailouts because. otherwise. you will. ruin the public finances of those countries who are contributing to it. as long as each country is responsible for its budget it has to take full responsibility and the only right answer to that is no bailout.
still to come for you egypt's freedom to oppress countries a military power over the revolution that toppled president mubarak amid allegations of abuse is sparking anger among citizens. u.s. missile defense plans for europe have suffered a major setback prague is now refusing to take part in the system check officials say they're not happy with washington's offer as i. can explain. prague wants a bigger role in this project the project of the european missile defense shield we understand that the initial plan mensah that only a preventive missile detection system would have been placed in the czech republic while major other major components of the system like the raiders station or the missile anti-missile complexes in poland were meant to be placed in other countries like turkey romania there was an initial plan by the bush administration which was
scrapped by the obama administration when he came to office in two thousand and nine the bush plan seriously irritated mosco with many claiming that this plan was directed against russia the obama plan a plan seemed to be much better seem to be much more convenient for all sides in that but in the past several years we've seen lots of contradictions between the words and the actions and mosco is still pretty much unhappy about the way this project is being carried out saying that on many occasions washington does something without the consent so the initial plan of the united joint defense system in europe is not working out so far with the statements by president reagan saying that in fact that there are no legal guarantees that this system would not be used against russia because the rogue states which this missile defense system should be protecting europe from do not have the missiles which the system is intended for those missiles only are in possession of russia so clearly all this makes great serious concerns in mosco and the war of words continues we are waiting
for some comments to come from washington certainly but experts are now trying to guess whether this turnaround the fact that the czech republic wants to withdraw from this project is somehow related to moscow's continuous voice of discontent on that issue. well the west is weighing in to yemen's ongoing unrest but doing so with deadly force officials in the troubled country say that u.s. drone strikes have killed over one hundred people including civilians over the past two weeks now the u.k.'s prepare preparing rather to get helicopters into the air and commandos squads for possible action in yemen artie's lore and it has more of this from london. they are becoming more and more involved saying all the time we don't want to get any more involved in the conflict in yemen any more involved in libya than we can help it any more involved in the middle east as a region as a whole apaches attack helicopters we've seen them in in general. in iraq and in
afghanistan and of course most recently in libya where the involvement was seen as a mox escalation in the involvement of u.k. and french nato troops very low flying civil likelihood of casualties is much increased by presence and it does look like an escalation of involvement again as we've said so many times about libya the legality of this is extremely. we are seeing u.s. drone attacks increasing numbers of u.s. drone attacks in yemen and the reasoning for that is that according to u.s. forces is taking advantage of what's going in going on that and moving into this power vacuum which is being created since president saleh left and went to saudi arabia for medical treatment moving into that the activity taking advantage of general civil unrest to grab more support more and more territory so that's the reason for the u.s. paying these drone attacks that's how it's justifying it but of course that power
vacuum works both ways interestingly the u.s. forces the military forces used to cooperate with the president on who to attack and when intelligence kind of those kinds of territorial issues but now the u.s. can easily say that there's no authorities with with whom to cooperate the government is essentially not in operation anymore so if they if they wanted to one would have thought that they could just go ahead and attack where they like and of course we've now seeing president obama ok the use of cia drones now cia drones will have a much more you really miss and much. selection of targets that they can they can aim we've also heard reports from a deputy provincial governor in yemen saying that one hundred thirty people have been killed in drone attacks just in the last month and that many of them were. what appeared to be innocent civilians and then of course the last thing is this secret cia base for trains that we hear is being built in the persian gulf region we're getting reports of that all the time and that is in case the yemeni
government. no longer permits these drone attacks in the country they need a base with which from which to fly they say really very much more involved in terms of both the u.s. and the u.k. . let's take you to the heart of what's happening in greece journalist still be on those. in the midst of the general strike protests we can cross live to him now and find out exactly what is happening on the ground. so it is the i'm sorry i was just going to get to you it's the third general strike in greece this year to protest the government just what do people the most and why why such a reaction. first of all i have to let you know that i can't hear you properly because i mean we have war actually you know what's going on in the streets of athens we have been killed a lot of tear gas a lot of chemical thinks a lot of chemical stuff that they spread on their own and there is at the moment there is a war with molotov and protesters and the police. all the motorbikes on the motorcycles
and that's why i cannot hear you very well but this thing is that people. brought their stead very peacefully as they always do and you know it for more than seventeen eighteen days and what's going on now is beyond logic it's a war. it's a war with motorbikes they were with molotov and of course a lot of chemical stuff that they spread on their own go ahead please because now i think i can hear you ok so you're describing essentially what sounds like a war scenes a molotov cocktails gas helicopters roaring overhead let's talk about who the initiative here about the. european aid packages worth billions of euros but who stands to benefit from the learn. i hope you are not joking at the moment because everybody knows in greece and even russia today knows and al-jazeera knows that their money all the money they take all those billions they just go for derivatives
and their securities of the banks they go for the balance they don't come to the homie of greece and that's we can guarantee everybody knows that even they lay there the last civilian in greece know that their money from all those loans they don't go to their reality i mean i told you last year in may just before we enter the international monetary fund that we know what mr george and his cronies they do they're not going to change their job this is their job this is what they do and they will continue doing it and people the difference now is that people know and people cannot stop at the moment and i wonder really those helicopters at the end now were crying from the tear gas but who's going to be crying at the end ok so as you're as you're saying i'm very aware this money this money just goes to the fat cats who are lining their pockets it's not going to the people it's not going to be economy give me a solution what can be done to fix this. first of all. they should reach an
agreement with the european central bank or the european union what to do i told you last year i tell you this year i ever body says we cannot pay all the money they heads they all the money we take is in order to pay the high interest rates this is this is robbery this is theft this is swindle i can't describe it any more and the problem for them now is that people know that they realize that they see their income don't going down they see taxis taxis taxis and nothing else their money does not go to the real economy. as you're saying so this is just a blatant act of fraud and theft in broad daylight is there any sense of why did we join the e.u. . the first place. there are a lot of financial analysts in greece and a lot of professors recently that they say they should either tell greece what they should do for example so they give priority to tourism or energy stuff and continue
and let us breathe a little bit with those interest rates because we know greece cannot pay all those interest rates in the two three years that they gave. the limit so if they don't come with a solution and they decide right we give you time to repay your loans but at the same time we help you in this specific factor of your economy to recover and now at the moment you see hundreds of thousands of people greek people that they know they demonstrate they know that there is no tomorrow they know that they have no income unemployment you think unemployment is this is what they telling you know realign employment will reach twenty five percent and this is a chaotic situation and the only responsible for this situation is the international monetary fund the minister of finance i hear now that they will change him but it's too late somehow you know this government has failed yesterday we had the education to go to members of the socialist party resigned because now
they see that they're in danger and i tell you what i told them last december in my last program in greece in a few months you will not be able to walk arm on gas investor. and i'm asking you who is who is able from the parliament to come down to the people and walk among. simple people nobody nobody and they know it so the sooner they realise what they do they will realize also that they have to leave and you know very well what the prime minister of greece discussed with mr putin when he came to moscow now we will wait and we will see how he is going to leave or when he's going to leave or what is his solution because. because of those the meters from the square very informative things you have to stay there thank you very much indeed for your time . thank you. now iran says it has no plans to possess nuclear weapons it was during talks with russia at a key summit of asian countries they just wrapped up their meeting with leaders
which focused on tackling the raft of economic and security issues which face them . reports from the summit. along the meeting between russian president dmitry medvedev and iran it was a closed door meeting however after words for a minister sergey lavrov did come out and said that. it did confirm to president medvedev that iran is in total renouncement of plans to possess nuclear weapons now this is important because the nuclear nonproliferation has been a major topic here at the summit as well as the controversial nuclear program of iran and also discussed at that meeting is the. plan of iran to to get rid of the u.n. sanctions because the u.s. is really. going to be a hurdle. for membership into b.s. you know but aside from iran president get it also met with the leader of his side
and here they have discussed of course the a drug situation in the country which is threatening the security of russia as well as the potential business deals of the two countries big deals apparently because russia is so willing to contribute a lot to the rebuilding of the country but they did touch on a whole range of important issues that are happening in the world today as expected they had been a very vocal about the situation in north africa and the middle east and they have come up with an official statement which does reflect what they have been saying all along that the international. involvement in those parts of the world really have to adhere to international law particularly in libya they're calling for the troops there calling for nato in particular to adhere to the u.n. resolution one hundred seventy three one thousand nine hundred seventy that had allowed for the no fly zone over libya they do not agree with father military
involvement in such situations also foreign minister lavrov had issued a separate statement on syria saying that russia has not and will not change its position on the matter and that russia would be against. the u.n. resolution on the syria security in the region that was at the top of the agenda the presence of a here has been a very important it has brought a lot of issues to the table i've got a status here as a guest and they want to be on the server to be a c.e.o. one of the key issues is the post made to the future of the country that members do believe that the stability of afghanistan is essential to stability in the entire region and also of course topping that agenda with regard to. the drug situation this is very important for russia and they have all acknowledged that they have to come up with a common strategy in dealing with this president. let's hear what he had to say on the matter. afghanistan. can be.
hugely important. and also they had made a statement on the fact that a unilateral missile defense system is going to be a threat to international security. decision made by one country or by one group but not. have explicitly expressed their intent to become full members and it is hoped that by joining the this will rather tense relationship between the two countries. saucily reporting right now it's just clicking over twenty minutes past the hour here in moscow to you with artsy let's check out some other news from around the world this hour pakistani intelligence says at least ten alleged
insurgents were killed in a u.s. drone attack in northwest pakistan a series of strikes targeted a suspected militant compound near the main town in pakistan's south waziristan tribal area the region is known for housing many taliban insurgents who frequently carry out attacks against the government forces. syria is calling on refugees who fled to turkey to return to the town they abandoned after the crush. the government says it it's regained control and will continue to what it calls the remnants of terrorist groups eight thousand people left the town and are now in refugee camps on the turkish border syria's in months of brutal crackdowns on protests to try and force the president to quit. suicide car bomber has struck in northeast afghanistan near a governor's building killing seven including police officers the taliban's admitted the attack which targeted the french ambassador and a military convoy a separate attack occurred at almost the same time just south of the capital when
a rocket was fired on a police training center the vice president and interior minister with there but no reports of any injuries. well egypt's drive for democracy has seen thousands of arrests media censorship and a state of emergency all of this since replacing president obama now it's not what egyptians were hoping for after the february revolution left hundreds dead many are wonder whether the price was worth paying as it is where a financial reports from cairo. pays to have a jeep never sleeps. the eighteen day uprising that ousted president mubarak has woken up the hell nation these has become a common scene here and this to. amnesty international estimates at least eight hundred forty people were killed and more than six thousand wounded during the protests that forced a tyrant to step down but even in a barrack free country the resume for fear and frustration. read his brother was
among fifteen young man killed in the violent religious strife that his cairo just weeks after the revolution egyptian christians and muslims clashed following reports that a young christian woman was kidnapped and held in a coptic church after she married a muslim and converted to islam but even then he was a christian coptic it wasn't a muslim that killed read his brother the man is not an honest neither should my brother dead a bullet went through his forehead and it came out on the other side and i saw it if no one here has a weapon like this on this old is there it's hard to grasp what happened. rather blames the army for taking the life of his younger brother and the revolution given the army so much power. and as. we expected the army to intervene to protect people just don't buy lands free but instead they started to kill people themselves
who didn't expect that all that it that the people of egypt didn't expect many things they didn't expect the economy to collapse they didn't imagine the path to a free and democratic society would be such a bloody and painful one they just wanted to free from dictatorship and didn't expect it all to find themselves under get another one in military one the power in egypt now since mubarak is out rest firmly in the hands of the military chiefs of staff. they were sitting literally in the pentagon war room when the twitter revolution started they are running the show there has been no displacement about military power but this is a washington installed as i call it in my book full spectrum dominance totalitarian democracy the people who stood on deaf ears where we jubilant the regime that oppressed them for more than three decades was going how pharaoh as they call the dictator would soon finally face justice for what he's done but months on the
revolutionary euphoria has got as well and people are asking themselves was that really was the hundreds of victims and did they really get a better country in. egypt is at the crossroads it could go towards chaos or democracy the worst scenario would be if the army continues to rule and the country sinks into blood from a civil war it's up to the people to decide. months since the free it shook the whole arab world it's clear the revolution may now be a part of history but the fight is far from over. so i see what's going on in the world of business with. her welcome to the business bulletin here and out here with me kareen malecon russia's midsized banks looks set to get a helping hand to the tune of one billion dollars the international financial corp
